i had knit Doug a blanket...each stitch extending well wishes and peace.
basically, it was finished, but i didn't get to the post office last week to mail it. It was ready to mail today. :(
needless to say, a blanket is small thing, but i hope you will accept it as a token to show that even people who hadn't met your father appreciated him as he impacted others for the better.
my heart breaks for you and your family...
